    I'm not the slimmest person and do have many insecurities. But one thing I'm proud of is my pump. It gives me the chance to spread awareness of diabetes!

    I tend to keep my Vibe vertical in the middle of my lycra stretch bra most of the time as it stays safe and sound andwwon't come out unless I put my hand up or down to remove it. Other times I put it in my jeans pocket with my t shirt over the top and no one is any the wiser. Cropped lycra t shirts are a good option.

    What pump is in the photo?
